Julie Curry claims a woman with a similar description came into her Clovis boutique on Friday, and used a counterfeit $100 bill to pay for merchandise.

Curry thought the note looked strange, and a bank teller convinced her to call police. You'll recall, The Girl Scout council says someone is using counterfeit money to buy cookies.

Cowgirl Glitz Boutique owner, Julie Curry said, "When I saw the story on the Girl Scouts taking it, that people need to know in the community that this person is out there"

The Secret Service is now involved, and investigating both incidents.
